It's a bummer to hear about all that very disconcerting stuff happening in your neck of the woods.

It's even more of a bummer that this is the image that most of the Western world has of Islam.

I am no expert and have no personal experience, but from speaking with friends who come from Arabic/Muslim backgrounds, it is pretty clear that Islam has undergone many perversions that have taken the original spirit out of the religion, perhaps to the same degree that this has occurred with Christianity.

Just like the Christian Nazis in America, the Arabs have their own religious extremists... and its these extremists in every sphere of influence: religion, business, politics, etc. that bring small-mindedness which brings misunderstanding and hatred and violence and pain.
